More Alan-ness


I posted on CaringBridge recently how Alan is getting to be so much fun.

Some examples of this:

He's so smart; he puts things IN stuff. Blocks in the bucket, golf ball in the empty egg carton... Just this morning he picked up Dale's wooden train whistle and put it in the box of wooden blocks.

For days and days now we've been looking at a board book of animals together. I'll point to the animal and tell him it's name and what sound it makes. He likes to look at this book by himself too. This morning as he held it open he was pointing at the animals.

A couple of days ago he was sitting at one end of the hallway and I was at the other. I fully extended my arm, pointing in his direction and said, "I see you!" And he pointed back!

And my favorite:
Just a little while ago I scooped him up and held him close. I whispered in his ear, "I love you!"

And bless his heart, he whispered his own baby gibberish back to me. You haven't lived until you've had a baby whisper in your ear.

That puddle of wetness you see around my middle would be where my heart just melted. Oh the sweetness of a precious baby!
